Marriage and issueEdit

On 30 May 1754, Anton (as he was known) married Countess Frederica Charlotte of Dohna-Schlodien in Leistenau (3 July 1738 – 21 April 1785) in Königsberg. The couple had one child, Friedrich Karl Ludwig, Duke of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Beck (20 August 1757 – 24 April 1816).

Anton would have inherited the dukedom of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Beck had it not been for his early death by wounds suffered at the Battle of Kunersdorf.[2] His father Peter outlived him, so the dukedom was passed on from Peter to Anton's only son, Friedrich.
